say that the milly dowler story was more heavily involved with another stories that took place because of the magnitude of the events to the real shock and horror of what had happened? >> not particularly more or less involved. the one thing i would say that we have had a series under my editorship i'm a series of terrible and tragic news stories starting with sir payne and milly dowler's disappearance and the subsequent murder and then of course the following cases. and as you know, part of my main focus at my editorship at "news of the world" was in convincing parliament that there to be radical changes to the 1997 scandals act which became known as there is law, which was very similar to laws imposed around megan's law. i suppose if i had a particular extra involvement in the stories, it would have been on the basis that i was going to push and campaign for readers to write on the 10 pieces of legislation that we not through on cirrus law and campaign for this to be put forward. >> between 23, you reference the milly dowler case and how the press had were particularly well and it wa
